Pumpkin Smash & Bash

Wednesday, November 4, 2020

The event will feature a pumpkin-rolling contest, and then attendees can smash and bash their pumpkin and toss it into piles of compost. Winners of the rolling contest from each time slot will get to have their pumpkins dropped from an Edina Fire truck unless an emergency arises that requires a response from the department. Pumpkins should arrive free of paint and glitter and without candles, candle wax, stickers and glow sticks. Uncarved pumpkins may be brought for recycling, but will not be accepted for the rolling contest. The City’s organics recycling waste hauler, Vierkant Disposal, will provide the truck for composting and organics recycling education to attendees. The event is free, but registration for a time slot to participate in the rolling contest or to recycle a pumpkin is required and open at Timeslots available include 3 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Four pumpkins and six people is the maximum per registration.
